Buying used auto parts has its many perks. Salvage yards are one of many great places for you to purchase these parts. The main benefit of purchasing salvaged auto parts is the price. This is the primary reason why many consumers nowadays choose to buy salvaged parts rather than pay expensive prices for new parts. Generally, you can find used auto parts for a fraction of the cost of a new part, sometimes saving as much as half the price of what you would normally pay.
Purchasing used auto parts also helps reduce the need to have more new parts manufactured, meaning it also helps conserve our resources.

In addition, salvage shops offer a wide range of parts and brands to choose from. Literally, salvage shops got what you are looking for. Some salvage shops also take your old part for a discount on the part you are buying and re-manufacture it for re-selling.

The Five Basics to Car Restoration

Posted by on Aug 14, 2016 in Cheap Used Auto Parts NYC | 0 comments

It is a fact that every one of us wants to have a car of our own to take us everywhere on the road. Then if we put this to the next level some of us has that passion of restoring a classic car not only as a project but a priced possession to roll down on the road with pride. Furthermore, in doing so, there are some factors that need to consider in restoring a project car. It may take months, maybe years or thousands of bucks but is sure worth it once its finish. Here you are the 5 basics to car restoration.

  1. Look for a car that runs.

Buying a car that starts and running saves you more time and expensive mechanical repairs. If you buy a non-running car it is more likely to be expensive for your restoration and it will take more time just by looking for the parts alone. You might be needed to build a new engine but in the best chance possible that you will find a running car it might only take few part replacement and you will be alright.


  1. Find a car that has a good value.

There are many cars out there that can be restored but the value of the cars might be different even if it’s restored. Research and look for a car that has a potential not only as the car itself but also a market potential. You can never really tell, your project car when finished might be the next big thing!


  1. Rust could be another problem.

This is one of the hardest problem in car restoration, rust. You may find out that some parts or the chassis of the car you are restoring has been eaten by rust. It may take a long time to repair and cost a good amount of money; depending on how rusty is your chassis. You might need to cut the sections, fabricate, and weld new metal plates to strengthen the affected part. If you are lucky enough to find a new chassis you might use that and build your car on the newly found chassis.


  1. Parts should be always available; it’s a must on restoration.

This might be the another problem, the availability of parts. If parts are not available, it may hinder your restoration and hold you back and delay your restoration. Salvage yards like we New York City Auto Salvage and Glass has a wide range of cheap used auto parts that can help you on the parts you need. This ensures your project goes smoothly. This also secures you budget and you can save more on parts.


  1. Ask for an expert advice.

It will be very handy of you know someone who knows about restoration or someone who did a restoration to give you some advice on your project. If we go back to number 1 choosing the right car is always the good start. Feedback coming from an expert’s point of view is a saving tool from hiccups on your restoration.
